SAWE Recommended Practice No. XX

1 Scope
This recommended practice provides clarification and guidance for implementing the
Expanded Ship Work Breakdown Structure (ESWBS) weight classification system. This
guidance provides a common weight system that transcends all ship classes. The
recommended practice will provide a static classification system based on the original
1985 ESWBS document and the current dynamic database. This document does not
replace ESWBS for historical weight keeping. The purpose of this document is to
incorporate weight classification changes due to changing technology, construction
practices, and other issues as they arise.

2 Purpose
There is a need for guidance on the use of the current weight classification processes and
practice. Currently there resides a different weight classification system for different ship
classes based off of the 1985 ESWBS document. The current database for weight
classification is available only online and does not contain detailed descriptions for
weight classification. Additionally, certain new technologies do not have a home in the
current weight classification system. The purpose of this document is to provide
clarification for using the ESWBS weight classification system in a static form that
includes details.
To correctly catalog new technologies additional weight classification is need in order to
ensure commonality between ship classes. Some technology can be classified under the
current structure, requiring only additional definitions to be added to the current system.
Additional groups are necessary to accommodate other technologies. To accommodate
new technologies, this guidance has re-titled groups, created groups, and added detailed
definitions to groups. As new technology becomes available additional guidance will be
included to ensure commonality in weight classification.

3 Associated Documents
This optional section should show complementary or other associated documents used
with this RP. This is not a bibliography of citations used within this document; that is
found at the end of the document.
This recommended practice shall be used in conjunction with the following publications.

5 Weight Classification Guidance


This weight classification guidance is to be used for applying weight group classification
to weight line items in a ship weight database. The following section gives specific
guidance on classifying different weight items and systems. All weight items not
specifically described are to be placed in the three digit weight group as dictated by their
function or system they sustain. The 1st and 2nd digit levels are typically reserved for title
cards. Section 5 provides guidance on select systems for clarification purposes.

5.1

Integrated Power System (IPS)

The IPS employs the same power generation for both propulsion and ship power. IPS is
a methodology change from previous ships that have separate systems for propulsion
power and ship service power. Most of the IPS consists of existing technology and parts.
IPS components will be placed in groups based on their function. Historical databases
may need to be adjusted when comparing a non-IPS ship with an IPS ship. The most
notable change will be weight moving from group 2 to group 3 as some of the propulsion
systems will now be combined propulsion and ship service power generation systems.
Dedicated propulsion generators will remain in group 235 as they remain a dedicated
system.

5.2

Dual Band Radar (DBR)

DBR uses one array for two different radar search modes. DBR is considered a multifunction radar and is included in group 456 Multi-Function Radar Systems.

5.3
5.3.1

Electronic Module Enclosures (EME), Rafts, and Skids


EME

Electronic Module Enclosures (EMEs) are designed to be installed as a unit with self
contained environmental and power considerations. EMEs are designed to serve one
functional group. EME and all of its internal equipment shall be placed in the group that
best describes its intended function. The EME Foundation belongs in group 188
Common Foundations.
5.3.2

Rafts

Rafts are defined as a common foundation that is houses equipment that serves a single
designated function. The weight of the Raft shall be placed with the group to which its
function is best aligned. If a Raft houses more than one function but one single function
remains primary, the weight of the raft will be placed with the group to which its primary
function is best aligned. If a raft serves as a foundation for multiple groups with no
single primary function the weight of the raft and its foundation belong in group 188
Common Foundations. The foundation for a raft belongs in group 188 Common
foundations.
5.3.3

Skids

Skids are defined as a common foundation which is used to mount multiple pieces of
equipment for multiple functions or systems. Skids are used for ease of production and
equipment mounting requirements. The equipment mounted on the skids may have
individual foundation and dampers that are not part of the weight of the skid. Individual
equipment foundations mounted on the skid shall be placed in the group appropriate to
6

SAWE Recommended Practice No. XX


the equipment. The weight of the skid and skid foundation belong in group 188 Common
Foundations.

5.4

Fiber Optics

Fiber optics is broken down into two separate weight classifications. The fiber optic
cable is treated as cable based on its function. For example; fiber optics cable used for
lighting will be in group 331 Lighting Distribution. The second weight classification is
Fiber Optic Cable Plants which includes fiber optic interconnection boxes, trunk cables
and their associated connectors and splices. Fiber Optic Cable Plants belong in group
416 Fiber Optic Cable Plants.

5.5

Total Ship Computing Environmental Infrastructure (TSCEI)

TSCEI is a computer infrastructure that contains different systems on the ship. There is
no specific weight group for TSCEI equipment. The equipment for TSCEI belongs in the
group of the system to which they are associated.

level this document gives some guidance on what to include and not include. This is not a comprehensive list of items. This document includes
things at the 1 and 2 digit level followed by zeros. These groups are not weight holding groups and are used as title cards.
